All of the things (a total mishmosh)

1. I'm visiting andacus in a couple of days. Cannot. Wait. For srs. It'll be warm and sunny and I'll have my bff and wine and other assorted alcohols and yummy food and a bit of a break from my adorable munchkins. Let me tell you, this is appealing so, so very much.

2. Ava is continuing to love her gymnastics class and is progressing fast enough and showing enough promise that they've asked her to join the new competitive training class. It's meant to teach the basics early on to start a good foundation for kids who want to do gymnastics competitively later and it's invite-only. I'd never push her to do a sport competitively if she didn't want to, but I'd like her to have a good foundation in case she wants to. Plus the class is twice as long (which she would love) and small with lots of one-on-one attention. So, I think we're gonna try it out and see if she still likes it. If it's too much pressure or not enough fun or whatever for her, we'll switch back.

3. I'm writing some. I've made slow but visible progress on "Four Girls Sirius Black Could Have Fallen In Love With (And One He Did)." I'm still not entirely certain how that fic has turned into such a long one, but it is. It's not flowing as easily as it did last time I was working on it, but honestly I'm just pretty proud to have come back to a fic a year after taking a break from it and making progress on it. It might help that it's existed in my head one way or another for six years now... That's a hell of a thought... Shit, i need to learn to write way the hell faster.

4. In my headcanon, "Girl on Fire" is Castle's personal theme song for Nikki Heat. This makes me laugh every damn time it's on the radio. Yes, I know I'm a total dork. This is not news.

5. Everyone in my immediate family is illness-free for the first time this year since mid-January - which is fantastic and well overdue - but my extended family isn't doing so hot. My uncle's in the hospital with heart problems. My grandmother's mental faculties are... poor and she fell again (this time breaking her clavicle, but at least it wasn't her hip and at least she wasn't on the floor for two days before someone found her this time). She is finally moving to an assisted living home. It makes me sigh and feel old.

6. I've read so many fanfics in the last few weeks that they are actually starting to blur together. You'd think that would make them less enjoyable, but no. Not really.

Um... that is all, I think. Other than a hello. HELLO!

Meme ... six, seven and eight!

Writing meme stolen from clair_de_lune

Since I'm going ridiculously long on some of these, I'm posting three a day (in theory) for a week.

Meme: Step 1: Write down the names of 10 characters. Step 2: Write a fic of [at least] twenty five words for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. DO NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.
Collapse )Collapse )

FAIR WARNING - Some of these will be NC-17 (at least... they should be). The prompts gave me het, slash, femmeslash and threesomes (knowing me, I'm unlikely to get explicit on the slash or femmeslash). Also, I will be playing fast-and-loose both with canon(s) and with the interpretation of prompts. Additionally, some of my Marvel-universe knowledge is from Wiki and it probably shows. Also, as always, credit to andacus for listening to me talk ad nausem about story concepts and writing. <3

Goal for tomorrow: Threesome (Sirius Black, Darcy Lewis, and Damon Salvatore), Hurt/Comfort (Michael Scofield and Stella Gardner) and Crack (Clio Harper).

7th of 100 Things...

First day back at work since having to be out all week because of a family emergency (my grandfather is very ill so my mother flew back to take care of him for a bit leaving me without childcare. He's a couple weeks from 90 and while he's sort of doing better for the moment, we pretty much know that this threw him for a loop and he won't ever really recover... If he'd eat enough food to survive on, that'd help a fair bit though...). Anyhow, this is not really about that. This is about me being at work and therefore not doing other things such as a) writing and b) posting my 100 things post for the day. (Note to self: Win lotto soon). 

So, I'm doing a 100 Things post I had in my back pocket for a day where I had little time. Here ya go... and do remember that the 100 Things are "100 Fanfics I Have Loved" not necessarily "100 Fanfics I Would Rec..." because otherwise this might seem a bit self-centered...

This was taken shortly before my daughter nailed him straight between the eyes with a t-ball that she hit PERFECTLY. I'm gunning for a sports scholarship somewhere in her future. (Please, universe?)

If the sports thing doesn't work out, maybe photography will? She's gone batty with the iPad's photo capabilities. More shots behind the cut.

In totally unrelated news, I'm working on my Prison Break fics as I can (which is to say, nowhere near often enough) and I might possibly totally be going to play a Prison Break neighborhood in Sims2 just as soon as I find my disk... Which might take some doing. What do you mean writing-as-i-can and playing-sims-2 are in complete contradiction to each other? Pfft... Pfft I say.

One of these days I also need to finish up my "Four Girls Sirius Black Could Have Fallen In Love With (And One He Did)" since I have like 75% of it done and a solid 15k words not posted yet... But, um, PB has priority at the moment. Michael and Sara have taken over my brain while Sirius and his girl appear to have left my brain and gone on vacation for the first time in - oh - five years or so. (They've earned it) 

Also, while I work tonight (3:15-10:15 yuck), I have Sunday off! In fact, I have the next THREE Sundays off! This is amazing and will never ever happen again.
